Work as a volunteer at an artisan shop in Ecuador. A catalyst for change in the community the “taller” was the first group to consciously create an environmentally sustainable source of income in the community, more than 10 years ago. Mariana and Renee now sell modern and traditional jewellery and crafts made from seeds and other materials that they sustainably grow and harvest in the cloud forest.
As volunteer in Ecuador you will work in their shop and learn to make crafts and jewellery. You will be introduced to the history of reforestation efforts in the community, and the indigenous story of the Yumbo people.
If you are an artsy, want to help a low-income community and be close to their culture, this is a perfect match for you to do all of this and be immersed in a new culture and language!
